Explore the magical attractions of West Iceland and the tunnels carved into a mighty ice cap with this private excursion around Borgarfjordur fjord and the Langjokull glacier. This is the perfect tour if you are seeking a once-in-a-lifetime nature experience.

Your adventure begins when you are picked up from a meeting point near your accommodation in the capital of Reykjavik by an expert, friendly guide. As this is a private tour, you don't have to wait for any other travelers and can immediately set out into the spectacular landscapes of West Iceland.

This part of the country is famous for its beautiful mountains, coastlines, and countryside. As you travel, your driver can tell you about the most significant attractions, many of which have local folklore stories behind them. 

One of the best sights in the area is the Langjokull ice tunnel, which is an optional extra on this tour. You'll have to change from your private vehicle into a super jeep designed to scale a glacier's slopes to reach the ice tunnel. As you ascend the Langjokull glacier, you'll be blown away by the incredible views and the snow surrounding you.

Once you near the peak, you'll arrive at an artificial opening on the side of the mountain. After attaching crampons for safety, a guide will lead you into a breathtaking network of chambers and corridors that feel like they come from a fantasy novel. 

This gorgeous place is renowned for its vivid blue coloration and uniqueness. There's nowhere else on earth where such a tour is possible.

From here, or if you choose not to visit the ice tunnel, you can spend the day exploring the other highlights of West Iceland. There's plenty to discover around the Borgarfjordur fjord, and you'll get to see a diverse range of attractions close to each other.

Deildartunguhver is the highest-flowing hot spring in Europe. You can marvel over the country's geothermal power here before continuing to the village of Reykholt and the town of Borgarnes, both steeped in history. The former was home to a legendary chieftain and writer, and the latter is home to the Settlement Center, as it was one of Iceland's first communities.

You'll also get to see classic examples of Iceland's natural beauty, such as the waterfalls of Hraunfossar and Barnafoss.

Since this is a private tour, you can customize which sites to prioritize and replace certain attractions with others more suited to your interests at your guide's recommendation.
